Safe Upon The Heavenly Shore


Safe upon the heav’nly shore,
Done with pain forevermore,
Weariness and weakness o’er,
Up yonder;
O the calm and quiet rest
On the loving Saviour’s breast;
It is better than earth’s best,
Up yonder.

Storms shall never reach us there,
No more sorrow, pain or care,
No more cross for us to bear,
Up yonder;
Gain for them that suffered loss,
Crowns for them that bore the cross,
And a calm for hearts that toss,
Up yonder.

Safe upon the heav’nly shore,
Done with sin forevermore,
Weariness and weakness o’er,
Up yonder;
Never more to know a fear,
Never more to shed a tear,
Batter far than ever here,
Up yonder.
